If Stephen Box pushes veteran Tom LaBonge into a run-off tonight; it may be because of the Food Trucks.
Bottom line is this - old school Tom HATES the food trucks and has tried to make their lives miserable. Stephen Box has been quite supportive on the other hand and has earned massive support from the trucks and their foodie fans. Box has even organized meet-ups of trucks and voters that have been quite successful.
Something interesting is happening right now - in a scene perhaps reminiscent of Egypt the downtrodden masses are using social media to turf out a decades in power dictator. Twitter is abuzz with food truck operators and fans tweeting out the vote for Box
